of the forthcoming book thomas jefferson, and mark halperin of time magazine and john heilemann of time magazine. >> albert hunt, executive editor of bloberg news and david leonhardt the bureau chief of "the new york times", joining us shortly from washington, katty kay of bbc world news of america, and slate magazine, we have a really fascinating group of people here to talk about what was a remarkable debate. i begin first with al hunt. >> charlie, if the barack obama who was on stage at hofstra had showed up in denver two weeks ago, he might have put this race away. i don't think mitt romney did poorly tonight, i thought he actually did, you know, fairly well but barack obama was the ago press sorry. he set the agenda. he did everything he failed to do in deb very, denver, both in defending his record and in challenging some of governor romney's inconsistencies. my guess is that he let romney back in two weeks ago and this won't change, this is a very, very tight race and there was hemorrhaging, all indications were really that this was continuing that he probably stopped that this evening wi

and managing editor of post and mark halperin senior political analyst for "time" and msnbc. chris to you as a viewer, not rating the debate, winners or losers, not that, but who answered questions and who was responsive to the people in the room and people at home? >> my read out on it, andrea, i watched it live and rewatched some of the clips, i have not watched the whole thing again, so let me say that as a caveat, but my read is neither of them really answered that many questions. candy crowley, i think, to her credit, repeatedly kind of said, you answered apples and the question was oranges. they did not answer the questions that were asked of them broadly. at one point there was a question about gas prices and we started talking about china. they kind -- as you go along in the debate, they each are trying to correct what they view as errors they made before so they use whatever question is asked to go back and say, now let me just make one point here. so i don't think from an undecided voter's viewpoint if you were looking for more information about where the two of them stan

it has worked in his favor. joining me now, msnbc's senior political analyst mark halperin and "usa today" washington bureau chief susan page and columnist for "the washington post" uveen robinson. welcome all. first to mark halperin, the move to the center there's no complaint from conservatives, is it, so eager to defeat president obama they say anything that works is okay with them? >> well, romney has had as you know a troubled relationship with certain elements of the right, even after he picked paul ryan there was a brief honeymoon period there, people held their tongue for a while but the criticism started again. i think certainly the conventional wisdom amongst the chattering class now the debate performance will quiet critics on the right and get away with saying things moving to the center. the two things, one, it's being overstated how much he's changing positions or even rhetoric from some of the things he's previously said for good or ill but i don't see the cosmic switch to the center as much as others do and the other thing, if he has a bad debate in two weeks i'm not sure

york is tina brown, editor in chief of news week and the daily beast. from boca raton, mark halperin of time magazine and john heilemann of new york magazine. chuck todd of nbc news, from washington albert hunt, executive editor of bloomberg news joining us shortly gwen ifill of pbs and raddatz of nbc and john dickerson of, and slight magazine i am pleased to have each of them here this evening for this important debate and as always i begin with al hunt in washington. al. >> carlie, i think mitt romney went into this debate and the calculation was all he had to do was hold his own, he would win a draw and just show he could be commander in chief. in many ways it was very similar to the strategy barack obama had ironically in denver and in both cases i believe it misfired. almost from the beginning romney was on his heels and as the debate shaped up he ended up agreeing with barack obama's policies on just a stunning number of issues on bin laden, on drones, on pakistan, on getting out of afghanistan, in 2014, iranian sanctions, syria defending israel, even to some extent on libya. s

-- >> is he in chicago or is he here? >> we have mark halperin, of course, right here, right across the table. you know, if a lot of people out there are wondering why mika's thrown off this morning, all you need to do, willie, look at her sweater. that's why she's in mourning. it's jet green, of course -- >> i'm looking at the food on your sweater. >> all of the great love stories of our time, sampson and delilah, right? >> i told you he was distracted. >> romeo and juliet. lucy and desi, ronny and nancy. as the who sang in "who's next," "the song is over. i'm left with only tears." mark and eva longoria. >> i told you. >> splitsville. >> i told you, he was distracted. >> it's a romance that i thought would last a lunchtime and now it's over. >> i confess to not being as read in on that story as i should be. let me report back to you. >> you know lupica. they say these are the glory days of new york giants fans. go back to the '50s, the glory days of the early '60s. now's the time. you disagree. he's sniffing glue. >> he is greatly enamored of eli manning, as am i, but i think the glory days

'm going to page 6. >> mark halperin has been asking for weeks for specifics from the president about what he would do, what new policies he would propose over the next four years. so he put out this 20-page booklet yesterday. >> that's great. >> maybe we'll get a look at what a second term would look like. one line. quote, the document contains no new proposals. >> oh, wow. >> not a new word in it. >> but you know, at least, mark halperin, we can find out what he's going to do by what he says at editorial board meetings because this has been forever. you go to editorial board meetings, and you talk and you talk to the editorial board, and they decide whether they're going to endorse you, and then they tell the people what you told them, right? that's how it works, right? >> it's a great way to learn things particularly in the battleground states with a lot of serious newspapers who get a chance with an extended conversation with the president so he can kind of lay out views for the reeders, or not. >> like des moines, let's say. so the president goes on "the view," and he goes on "inside

of the "national review", from danville is mark halperin of time magazine, chuck todd of nbc news and from washington al hunt, executive editor of bloomberg news, joining us shortly from washington will be katty kay of the bbc world news america, gwen ifill of pbs and joining us in new york is john dickerson of nbc news and slate magazine, i am glad to have all of them and we go to al hunt for an assessment of what you saw in evening. >> charlie, we saw the anti-obama tonight, and his name was joe biden, the vice president did everything the president failed to do last week. he effectively, i felt rather effectively and passionately defended most administration policies, and he also effectively criticized without malice some of the romney proposals and contradictions. >> i think aside from a few stylistic issues, programs interrupt ago few too much and smirks it was a very good night for the vice president. paul ryan clearly showed tonight that substantively he can play in the major leagues he didn't make any mistakes and held his own. >> and the president in denver last weekend, and i thi

and the biden interruptions will be a juicy topic for discussion. >> rose: mark hall snrin. >> halperin? >> well, i am mostly going to paraphrase what rich lowry just said, there are two things that clearly come out of this, one is the detrimentally base is going to be pleased that they thought, saw the somebody fighting on their behalf and being aggressive on a lot of big issues that the president did not prosecute in the last debate. two, i think it is clear that with paul ryan will come out of it having a lot of favorable impressions and for a lot of people the impression he is ready to be president if that were required. the big open question is, how much will this debate be defined with the romney campaign's efforts and willingness on the part of the weed by joe biden's verbal and visual ticks which could end up this is all it is remembered for, even if that is dominant on cable and in comedy shows, which i think it certainly will be, i don't think this debate is really going to change much about the trajectory of where the race is, it is all going to look toward the presidential debate com

msnbc and "time" magazine senior political analyst, mark halperin. hello, halperin. former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst steve rattner. good to have you on board as well. >> morning, mika. >> we have new polls this morning that are very interesting. and i see how alex has stacked this. and we just started fighting. and alex doesn't really fight. about this whole binder thing. how is that not a lie? can we go there, halperin? when you say you sought out, and then it turns out that they were brought to you, that's not the truth, correct? >> i just don't think that's what this campaign should be about. >> right. >> i would say that about either side. >> what, us calling out facts shouldn't be about that? all right. we'll get to it. but i will totally disagree. it appears with everybody at this table. >> explain what you mean that's important. >> at the debate the other night, mitt romney talks about how there weren't enough women, and so he sought them out. >> right. >> and then binders of women were brought to him, which is a whole funny thing but, you know, tha

after the interview those ideas are actually not part of his plan writing -- mark halperin, as you know, i'm an easily confused person but i think for even people like you who are not easily confused this is very confusing. is the romney campaign betting they can get through by just confusing the american public into submission? >> alex, if i were the kind of person who got depressed by a lack of specificity and seriousness in presidential politics i would be very depressed. this cycle you can judge? in different ways. the lack of specificity is ghouling for three reasons, two serious guys, two, the country has big challenges and three both campaigns are enunciated this principle on big important serious things, rather than have the candidate be specific at all about what they do, they say really it's better for the public to have this the rashed out with congress after i'm elected. the president says the same thing about social security reform. i find it unorthodox and maybe i need to cover a few more to cover the romney campaign, a major float of a proposal in a local television inter

, the fact wars. mark halperin, i've been trying to find appropriate terms that would be substitutes for the phrase game change. i can't. you coined it, you own it. which of these videos, is either one of these videos a game changer in terms of tonight's debate? >> alex, any student of political tv and cable news who didn't watch hannity last night i pity the fool. it was an awesome episode of the show and i mean, if there was some mastermind trying to figure out how to change the game with that video, i think they kind of failed. some people are talking about it as simply for the base to energize the base. mitt romney is no longer running for the republican nomination, he's trying to win a general election. the things that might energize the base, that help to undermine the credibility of his effort with the mainstream media, if i may use that phrase, i think just aren't helping him out. that was a wasted day and lost yesterday after tie org wying og news psy cycles in a row. whoever was doing that on his behalf, ridiculous. >> the nipping at the heels, we've talked about the offens

news is we will clean up and we will get through this. >> we turn now to politics with mark halperin of time magazine, who is also the best selling author of game change. >> if this storm hadn't happened we would be seeing wall-to-wall coverage of one of the most exciting finishes to a presidential election in the television age. we are not going to see as much of that, certainly through the weekend. which means whichever candidate was going to befit more fr national coverage is going to lose paired to what it would have been like. >> rose: we conclude this evening, focusing on politics with nate silver, founder of "the new york times" blog >> i mean ohio is a swing state for a reason, is that it resembles the united states, rural areas and suburban areas, you could certainly have a case where romney wins the popular vote by one point and obama wins ohio and iowa by one point that is possible, maybe a one or two-point shift but there is most no way to look at the historof tsounry or try to do the more complex things, the mathematical models unlikely to have romney win the po

, mark halperin. >> i think i speak for everybody when i say this morning we are all washington senators. >> we are. >> i'm still not going to call them the nats. we had a debate, but willie, really quickly last night, some more great baseball. >> holy cow. >> can you believe that? >> can you see it on my face, when you invest that much time in a game, you have to stay up late and see what happens. >> what time was that over? >> about midnight. >> i came home, vice presidential debate on dvr, yankees live, it was a long night. the yankees lost extra innings. another 12-inning game. 13 innings, excuse me. and the orioles came through in the clutch. a-rod, one more time, joe -- >> struck out. >> he struck out. and then when they had a shot down one run, the bottom of the last inning, they pulled him back to the bench again and sent eric chavez up. he made the last out of the game. it's an incredible story. alex rodriguez, one of the great players in the history of the game, is being taken off the field in crunch time. >> you just can't trust him in crunch time. all of these series going fi

. >> and with us now, mark halperin, co-author of the book game change. he's up early with us and this morning we'll stand a little closer than we did yesterday, make it a more intimate affair. let's look right away at your report card. president obama gets a b minus from mark halperin, a c for mitt romney. explain the grades. >> this debate was the biggest rorschach test i've seen since doing these grades. you have people including focus groups and polls that go one way, go the other. i think part of my grades are based on performance, part based on how it affects the race and the chances the person has of winning the contest. i thought governor romney lost for two reasons. one is the libya exchange. i think that was an issue where he thought he'd be on offense. i thought his answer was weak. the president's was very strong. the other main reason is what has mitt romney's problem in this campaign all along some when someone gets inside his head, when someone connects his policy proposals with his personal background, when someone says you're a rich guy, you've got all these bank accounts, you to
